WELCOME TO THE PATS PEAK SKI PATROL!
We are the people who work to keep the public safe on the mountain.
During ski season, you will find us patrolling the mountain from open to close, seven days a week. Regardless of conditions, we are out on the hill inspecting equipment, checking snow and grooming conditions, looking for hazards, helping injured patrons, and promoting safe skiing and riding.
All of our Patrollers are members of the National Ski Patrol. We receive extensive training in Outdoor Emergency Care, a specialized form of First Aid similar to Emergency Medical Technician training, but with special emphasis on outdoor sports injuries. Many of our Patrollers are also certified Emergency Medical Technicians, Nurses, or Doctors.
Our First Aid Room, located next to the Main Lodge, is open whenever the mountain is open to the public. Anyone with an injury should go to the First Aid Room for medical care.
You'll recognize a Patroller by their red jacket with the white cross on the back.

SKIER AND SNOWBOARDER RESPONSIBILITY CODE
The Pats Peak Ski Patrol endorses the Skier/Snowboarder Responsibility Code.
People enjoy skiing in many ways, using alpine, snowboard, telemark, nordic gear, and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled skiers. Regardless of how you enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in snow sports that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Please observe the code listed below and share with others the responsibility for a great skiing and riding experience.
- Allways stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
- You must not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.
- Whenever starting downhill or merging with another trail, look uphill and yield to others.
- Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, be sure you have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
Know the Code. It's your responsibility!
